Spring Cleaning!

Mrs.Anitha Abby

This is yet another post written by my friend Mrs. Anitha Abby. You can read her previous post here!

After moving to Saudi, I have begun to develop an obsession with cleanliness (especially of my kitchen, which probably has something to do with my fear of cockroaches) and hence I have begun to notice the speed at which dust accumulates at my home. I began to think of all the time I spend cleaning my home, taking out the trash etc. Even if I dust, vacuum and straighten up every other day, I would still find dust accumulated on nearly every surface of the house in a day or two. Dust just needs a small orifice and its back in our homes.

I started to reflect on how the state of our homes is a lot like Continue reading

Hold on….It’s coming!

Some of the biggest lessons of life are learnt from the most unexpected places and people. Nathan (my 1 and half year old son) taught me yet another lesson which I would like to share with you.

Have you ever prayed for something for a long time, but nothing seems to happen or change. Aren’t there prayers you whispered to yourself, thinking ‘God is not hearing this…what’s the point?’.’ Things just don’t seem to work the way you planned…doesn’t God know that I need this and it’s going to make my life easier?’

I have had such trialing times too, but here’s the good news Continue reading

Do you KNOW HIM?

One of the most exciting days I remember from my childhood was when daddy bought our first film camera. We were so anxious to hold it and my mom was very careful NOT to give it to us as we were still quite young. We were very cautious while using the camera and made sure everyone stood properly, smiled and focused so that none of the photographic film rolls were wasted. With time and technology advancement came the digital age with the popular DSLR/HD still & 3D cameras, which offered even sharper, crisp pictures and made things simpler. We could preview our pictures instantly, delete, view, edit using photo manipulation software, upload pictures and there was no need to buy film rolls or even visit a photo lab. We prefer the latest technology cameras, because Continue reading

Spiritual Heart Attack!

Recently I received an advice from a friend in regards to Nathan (my son) which taught me a great spiritual lesson. I was told not to let Nathan watch certain types of cartoons which promote violence, revenge or too much ‘dishum-dishums’. Ironically, this included one of my favorite cartoon in my childhood- Tom & Jerry. The explanation was quite simple. Kids tend to relate to the cartoon characters as real people and all the chasing, hitting, behavior etc as natural things and tend to ‘pick them up’ or copy them. Very often, it’s too late by the time parents realize the source of such violent outbursts. This is not their mistake as Continue reading

Impossible is Nothing!

I recall the days when I was pregnant with Nathan as though it were yesterday. As two sides to a coin, there are good and bad memories, and one of them is the mood swings. The crankiness kicked ever so often that it became quite difficult for my partner to predict or deal with, and yet, the kindness and tolerance my husband showed towards me is worth a Nobel prize in my eyes. I would like to share with you one such incident that taught me a valuable lesson, and I’m hopeful it will help some of you too.

I was in one of my moods Continue reading
